 Fellowship Program Opportunity Awaits for Graduate Candidates! (940 hits)
Are you interested in community-based research and HIV disparities? Do you need help competing for research grants? Are you looking for sustained mentorship and access to a critical mass of HIV research activities?

The Research Education Institute for Diverse Scholars (REIDS) was designed to meet the challenges and barriers to advancement experienced by groups who are underrepresented in the field of HIV/AIDS research. Fellows will attend a six-week Summer Institute for two consecutive summers and receive sustained mentorship for two full years from an interdisciplinary team at the Institute for Community Research (ICR), the Center for Health, Intervention, and Prevention (CHIP) at the University of Connecticut, the Yale School of Nursing, and the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA) at Yale. REIDS fellows also have access to numerous other mentors for special topical/technical support. Successful applicants will receive:
  • Up to $1,000 for round-trip travel to New Haven;
  • A $3,000 summer stipend;
  • Fully subsidized accommodation (lodging and $2,000 for food); and
  • The opportunity to apply for up to $20,000 in pilot project funding.


Applicants must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent and hold a post-doctoral or early-career faculty position while affiliated with the REIDS program. Scholars also are expected to have advanced preparation in theory-based research and content in a health-related discipline, research design and data analysis, and a demonstrable commitment to addressing HIV/AIDS disparities. Prior experience conducting an independent research project beyond the dissertation is desirable. Applicants will be drawn from underrepresented racial, ethnic, disabled and economically disadvantaged groups.

Summer Institute 2012 will be from June 11th to July 20th. For more information please visit the CIRA website at http://cira.med.yale.edu/opportunities/reids/index.html. Alternatively, Program Manager Jon Atherton can be reached at 203-764-8476 or jon.atherton@yale.edu for an informal discussion.
